Beetroot, Ginger and Coconut Soup

A tasty soup made with beetroot, ginger and coconut that will lift your taste buds, along with your spirits!

Colourful soup

As well as looking colourful this soup is full of flavour.  I like the flavour combination of beetroot and ginger in a juice, but in a soup with coconut milk this is just delicious.  As well as being colourful in flavour, a bowl packs many nutritional benefits.  Beetroots contain valuable nutrients that may help lower your blood pressure, fight cancer and inflammation, boost your stamina, and support detoxification.  Ginger is one of the foods that can give you a health punch, because it is so full of healthy benefits for your body.   Ginger helps regulate cholesterol, helps improve the immune system, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and has a beneficial effect on your overall digestive system, helping to regulate and aid the movement of food through your stomach, and small and large intestines.  Coconut milk is high in is rich in antioxidants and lauric acid.

      Awwh! I love it when the world of food bloggers opens up! I hope you enjoy the soup. I tried it on one of my friends who was dubious about the colour and they loved it! Let me know what you think of it!

        The colour reminds me of Hungarian cherry soup! 🙂 Yes – it’s great to meet new food bloggers and see what everyone else is cooking – especially when it’s something with new flavours 🙂

    Are nutrition facts per serving calculated on 4 servings? (The recipe says 2-4 servings) 😀
